I have been in the wine trade since 1986, when I founded Elizabeth Gabay & Partners. I moved to south-eastern France in 2002, and am now based between Provence,the Rhone/Languedoc, Liguria and Piedmont.
I became a Master of Wine in 1998, and am active teaching current students. I specialise in the South of France, Central Europe, and rosé.
I also started to work in Hungary over twenty years ago and have continued to work extensively with wines from across Central Europe. I make my own wine in Slovakia, in partnership with Vladimir Magula. The first vintage will be released very soon - you can read more about the adventure behind it here!
I work with my son Ben and husband David (Harvard MBA), especially on consultancy projects.
Most of the time, you can find me exploring and educating about the fascinating and fast-growing world of rosé, showcased in my latest book, Rosés of Southern France. Take a look at pink.wine for my latest tasting reports and more. I also write for magazines, especially Decanter about rosés and other wines from across the South of France and Central Europe. I am the President of the Jury of the International Rosé Championship
I consult for wineries, especially on making the most of the opportunities presented by the explosion in popularity of the rosé category. Take a look here about I can help your business.
I keep my Pink.Wine rosé guide updated, as well as writing for a wide range of wine magazines.
I also provide consultancy on wine lists, especially rosés, for importers across the UK and US.
You can also find me speaking at wine fairs and competitions () about rosé and other wines.
